European deep tech and the real pioneering innovation - from artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality to big data analytics and chip design - are attracting record levels of activity and investment in the past few years, according to Atomico’s report:
- Startups focusing on deep technology raised $1.3 billion of European venture investments in 2015 from just $289 million in 2011.
- The largest U.S. tech companies -- Alphabet Inc., Amazon.com Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook Inc. and Microsoft Corp. — are making at least one acquisition a month between the start of 2014 and the end of September 2016.
- Technology specialists and venture capital investors are betting on the need to power more technically complicated consumer and industrial apps.
The event is organised in collaboration with the Imperial Innovations and Imperial White City Incubator. Join to learn from the leading venture capital investors and founders about ‘The Future of DeepTech’. The panel will begin with a quick introduction, followed by a 45-minute discussion covering the progression of 'Deep Technology' and its present challenges.
